Great fun doesn’t have to cost you much and when it comes to these Shadow Puppets, it will cost you nothing at all.
You are never too old for Shadow Puppets and you’ll love sharing these fun ideas with the kids. Everyone will want a turn!
As you can see from the example above from 1000 Life Hacks, there are so many different hand animals that you will be able to make.
They are also easier than you think. Be sure to use a big clear wall or you could use a sheet and a torch.
You could even get the kids to sit behind a cardboard box and put on a Shadow Puppet performance! You can make a crab, rabbit, bull, moose, elephant, and snail to name a few. You have to try the crocodile and moose too!
